Out of nowhere - the sky filled.
Great white wings with the spots and hints of orange. It was enough to take your breath away. It was more than enough to take mine.
I don't know why - but that I was reminded of Peter Pan. I was reminded of how he never wanted to grow up...and how he could fly far and away to a place called Neverland. I remembered how he'd say that all you have to do is believe.
In magic. In fairy tales. In life ever-lasting.
I watched as they circled round and round....looking for that just right spot for that just right landing. I wondered if they were looking for Neverland. I wondered if they'd found it. I wondered if they'd ever grow up. I wondered if they- too - believed in life ever-lasting.
Because - it was...in that one moment - I needed them to believe...so that I could too. In magic. In fairy tales. In dreams coming true.
I wanted tospread my wings and fly - with them and Peter - to Neverland too.
I don't want to grow up. Do you?
